  1. Hey gang. After a fresh format I procede to install the latest nvidia nforce chipset drivers... after rebooting the computer appears to be hanging at the XP loading screen.. If i boot into safe mode the computer boots fine. After uninstalling the nforce ide controller I don't seem to have problems getting into windows again. Anyone ever get this? Or am I doing something wrong? Or need to do something else?
  2. Hi. I think i am having memory problems and need some guidance. i have a new SLi-DR motherboard and 2 Gigs of OCZ 3200. (check sig for specifications) Once in a while my machine will refuse to boot into windows (locks up) and on occassion it will lock up when playing a game.. Currently have 3/10 bios and everything is set to default except the memory voltage is currently 3.10 as anything lower will not cause the machine to boot to windows at all.
  3. Hi friend. I am new to this board so bare with me. I know you aren't running OCZ memory but refer to this thread: http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10644 I was having very similar problems to what you are having. I changed my bios settings as referred to by this guide and i haven't had any problems yet
  4. update: well having both sticks in is what is causing my problems i am running default settings in bios. are there any settings i can try to change?
  5. update: well.. i removed one of the sticks and placed one in memory slot 2. and currently have windows installed. going to run 3dmark and put a stress on the system to try to get it to crash. then going to try the other piece and see if i can find anything. are there any other programs other then 3dmark that is a good stress on the system ?
  6. it makes it thru a few test. it gets to the over % of 80 and locks up. ( that was memtest off of ultimatebootdisk.com) i am currently running the memtest included with the motherboard in bios to see if it locks up again
  7. UPDATE: memtest-86 locked up at 80% .. does this mean my memory is completely bad and most likely is what is causing my problems?
  8. i updated the bios still no go.. still slow as molasses when trying to load xp off of cd.. any other suggestions bios settings?
  9. killerjay: has it been confirmed that the shipping bios is unstable with certain manufacturers of memory sticks? ie.. my memory might not be stable with the current bios version and upgrading could solve the problem?
  10. are you able to run problems like mem test and flash bios off of cdroms now? *tries to find floppy disk*
  11. yes i have XP with SP2 integrated.. and using that to install. edit: i am fairly literate so don't be afraid to throw something out there that is advance. to my experience something tells me it's out dated bios conflicting with the memory or the memory sticks are faulty?
  12. Hi all. Great forum you have here. I am having a small problem with my newly built system. The specs include: DFI: NF4 SLI-DR motherboard AMD 4000+ Processor ( ZALMAN CNPS7000B-CU 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan ) OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Platinum System Memory 2x Maxtor 300 GIG SATA 16mb cache hard drives BFG 6800 GT PCIx SoundBlaster Audigy 2 oem Pioneer A09 DVD BURNER NOTE: I have yet to update bios. so i'm currently using the bios that it came with straight out of the box ( i don't know the revision number because i am at work at the moment) The first problem i noticed that when trying to install windows Xp it was extremely slow booting off of the cd.. loading the files neccessary for setup.. (i tried a different cd-rom) Once i finally get into setup. i do a Quick format FOR NTFS.. and right after it starts to load files neccessary for the XP setup it crashes into a blue screen.. Any help is greatly appreciated.
